Transformation in Movement

BrazilFoundation in Action - Transformation in Movement

We’re now in the second phase of our efforts against COVID-19 through the campaign “BrazilFoundation in Action – Transformation in Movement”. 

At the moment, donations to this campaign will be directed to Expedicionários da Saúde, one of our partner organizations that is providing support to small hospitals and field hospitals in Roraima, Pará and Amazonas to help indigenous and riverine communities there who are experiencing alarming rates of COVID-19 infections.

It will be years before Brazil can repair itself; our support is crucial for these social organizations to resume their work of pursuing social justice and equal opportunities in Brazil.

The Pandemic in Brazil

“The coronavirus pandemic has exposed Brazil’s profound social and racial inequalities. The pandemic’s resulting socioeconomic crisis has exacerbated the country’s existing food insecurity, putting communities at risk for long-lasting, negative social impacts such as increased child labor, school dropouts, youth unemployment and domestic violence, as well as weakened human rights protections.

Our objective is to provide another round of support for the initiatives in our network who have already received funds through our campaign.

Our efforts to fight COVID-19

We responded immediately to the pandemic. In March, we launched the campaign “BrazilFoundation in Action – Together Against COVID-19” and focused on bringing humanitarian support to vulnerable communities and minimizing the pandemic’s socioeconomic damages.
